Perspective is a technique artists use to depict distance and three-dimensional depth on the two-dimensional surface of their paintings.

If you look down a straight road, you will notice the road gets narrower and smaller until it finally disappears.  This point at the end of the road is called the vanishing point.  It has been used in art, since the 1400’s in Florence, Italy, when artists realized this added realism to their paintings.

Members of the YAAGroup will find instruction on drawing perspective and projects to work on to improve your artisitc skills.  http://www.yaagroup.org/join.htm
